Thankful For You

To create this card, I stamped the wreath image from the Thankful Wreath Stamp set using black ink on white cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut it out (the coordinating dies will be released soon!) and colored the entire image using Copic Makers. I used the coordinating die to cut...

You’re tops in my book

One for the front of the...

I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the top portion of each row and then pulled the color down...
